Texas #3 in business climate survey

In an annual comparison of each state's business climate, Texas has come in at No. 3, slipping down one notch from last year.

The rankings, released Thursday in Site Selection Magazine, showed that the South continues to dominate as the region most attractive to business leaders.

Magazine editor Mark Arend said the latest survey confirms the now well-established pattern of moving factories and offices to the less-unionized South, he said. The most popular sites "tend to be right-to-work states," he said.

For the third consecutive year - and the sixth time in seven years - North Carolina topped the list of states with the best business climate. Georgia came in No. 2.
